The practice uses computers in many aspects of its day-to-day activities. The computer is used during consultations as it enables us to keep your records up to date and helps us maintain an efficient register of all of our patients. It is an invaluable tool in preventative medicine, screening and education. The practice is registered under the Data Protection Act and strict confidentiality is maintained at all times.
